Summer Bubbles

A Long Weekend

This weekend was full of family time. We ate lots of s’mores, and Daniel built me some new lighting for pictures. Unfortunately, we could not spend our Memorial Day at the beach like we had planned, thanks to Tropical Storm Beryl. We did however have an impromptu hang out/cook out with our friends later that evening. It was a nice time enjoying burgers, banana pudding and watching all the kids play. All of the rain really helped my sunflower sprouts to shoot up, and this morning I found that my pepper plants are finally sprouting. Overall, the weekend was a success. Now it’s time to enjoy each night at home with no plans or places to go. No Commitments Stay-cation day 2!

Summer Faves

I love summer so much. Some would say that winter, being the season that gets Christmas, is the most nostalgic season. Growing up in Miami, winters meant nothing for me, because it never dipped below 50 degrees (and that was pushing it). Summer was what I looked forward to all year, because it meant that it was time to play. I still look forward to summer as an adult, even though I don’t get to experience the anticipation of the last day of school, or a two week paid summer vacation from work. The heat, the aromas in the air, and the overall theme of childhood that swirls around me for those glorious three months is the best. So my favorite things about summer are:
